Twenty-third Psalm

  1. The best known of the Psalms of the Old Testament , often read at funerals as a profession of faith in God's protection:

    The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

    He maketh me to lie down in green pastures;

    He leadeth me beside the still waters.

    He restoreth my soul;

    He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

    Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,

    I will fear no evil;

    For thou art with me;

    Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me.

    Thou preparest a table for me in the presence of mine enemies;

    Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

    Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life:

    And I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
